Picnic for Earth

Throughout April, and culminating around Earth Day 2013 (22 April), people in the USA and across the world will enjoy good food, sustainably sourced in the company of friends and family to celebrate Picnic for Earth.

You can take part by attending a Picnic for Earth event in your area, hosting your own Picnic event, or by simply going outside with friends or family to enjoy a private picnic.

Picnic for Earth honours the planet on which we live, the food it provides and the people we with whom we share it. By 2050, we’ll have 2 billion more people on the planet and it will take twice as much food to feed us all! Picnic for Earth aims to generate awareness of the need for sustainable food systems and the importance of protecting the natural sources of our food.

And with the weather getting warmer, it's a great time to enjoy eating in the open air!

Picnic for Earth is a part of The Nature Conservancy’s global All Hands on Earth campaign that asks people all over the world “What will you do for Earth?” 

Delighted to have three poems published on the Nature Writing website

I agree with Eileen, what a wonderful way to celebrate the earth! The small town that I live in is having an Earth Day Hike next weekend that I am going to participate in.

A picnic for Earth is a great idea. We have an amazing planet and should do more to protect it.

Picnic for earth is a great idea. I remember the first Earth day celebrations starting when I was a student in the 1970s. I may be wrong but as I recall the first Earth Day was in 1970.

I have never heard of this site. Congrats on getting published. I like the "Autumn Red" poem best, and thanks for leading me to another great poetry site!
